SINGS Hubble Tuning Fork Poster

SINGS Tuning Fork Poster

This poster displays the 75 SINGS galaxies arranged in a tuning fork based on their optical morphology. The color images of each galaxy were created from the SINGS IRAC 3.6um (blue), IRAC 8.0um (green), and MIPS 24um (red) images. This poster represents summarizes a large amount of work carried about by the SINGS team in writing the original proposal, planning the observations, reducing the data, and many studies devoted to understanding what the images mean. Most of the work for the poster itself was carried about by Karl Gordon with significant help from Robert Hurt. Many SINGS team members and Spitzer Science Center staff contributed helpful comments and advice.

The Spitzer Science Center has a feature article on this poster.
